My Campaign Platform

Fostering Growth and Opportunity

Vision for Growth: My priority as commissioner is to welcome and encourage economic development. Rowan County is uniquely positioned with the majority of available land along the I-85 corridor between Charlotte and Greensboro/Winston-Salem corridor, presenting vast opportunities for development.

Background in Global Business: With experience connecting with global industry leaders as a diplomat, I appreciate seeking outside opportunities to fuel growth here at home. But I also understand the vital importance of investing in our own grassroots, as small business owners pay local taxes while their money circulates more actively in our community than money spent online or with large corporations. I am comfortable speaking with industry leaders from here or overseas in order to build a stronger economy for our county.

I love Rowan County. If elected, I believe I can serve as an effective ambassador for our community to thrive.

I am seeking your support and vote this November 5 to become the next Rowan County Commissioner.

As a proud resident of this dynamic hub of innovators in business, government, and culture, I am excited about the opportunity to build upon our tremendous history together.
